Now I tried Cool PDF Reader just a few hours ago.
I downloaded version 3 of Cool PDF Reader, the single file, free version from pdf2exe company (650 kb size, the supposedly "zipped" file package). Done on and tried in Windows XP s.p. 3.
No installation necessary, but this was a runnable EXE, coolpdfReader.exe. It opens after a few seconds, not fast. Usage mouse-based choices gave very slow responses. Reasonable mouse control for drag-scrolling on the page, but no scroll bars if image on page is magnified. Attempt at magnification or image view reduction is very slow to respond. Other commands are very slow to respond. Opening and closing a file are very slow to respond. Because of the rate at which this program responds to user chosen commands, I prefer Foxit, or even Sumatra PDF Reader than Cool PDF.
I appreciate but have not yet tried the other suggestion in the previous posting.
